Is Note 7 The best mobile of the year? The phablet certainly has the advantage of being the last on the scene within the segment of the highest range, but to the throne is a mission not without obstacles, with more and more manufacturers and models in the running.

In addition to the S7 Edge the most direct competitor -by name and numbers of windows seems the iPhone 6S Plus Apple. It launched almost a year ago and the device holds up well the fight against the best Android handsets, although all sources already point to more than likely launch of the iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus perhaps, throughout the month of September.

However, in the comparison between the Galaxy Note 7 and S7 Edge he wins the first because it has an improved aluminum frame that is 30 percent more shock resistant and 20 percent safer from scratch.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 6S Plus Apple also boasts with a housing made of high strength aluminum housing that -7000- as we saw in the review served to outrun bendgate problems that caused the previous generation

If we look at the numbers the first conclusion on the comparison between the S7 Note 7 vs Edge vs iPhone 6S Plus is that the Apple phone is the heaviest of all, and yet, which has a thinner thickness.

The Note 7 is somewhat bulkier than the Edge S7 version, but not as much as expected. The Korean company seems to have done a little work of art engineering by placing each of the components, as indeed have reduced the width and weight of the previous generation, which will undoubtedly have a positive effect level ergonomics.
